Chequerboard is the recording name of Irish musician & visual artist John Lambert who blends classically tinged acoustic guitar with glitchy electronica. In 2007, Lambert received a music fellowship from the Model Arts & Niland Gallery in Sligo where he spent the year working on his celebrated Penny Black album. Since he has been recording and touring with the likes of Donal Dineen, Cane 141.
Last year, John recorded and produced 8mm Sounds – Chequerboard, an audio installation based on super8 camera noise recordings for the festival. The sound pieces produced will also be available for download from the Super8shots.com site.
